We jump off the mark this week with a lament on the common science fiction trap of authors overstaying their welcome in their own universes. From there we move into the realm of twins consuming themselves in the womb, and the occasional leftovers that stick around when they don't finish their meals. After a quick commentary on killer neck massagers, we all offer our reactions to Apple's decision to stop coming to MacWorld after 2009, and also to the lack of Steve Jobs at that final keynote. Conversational evolution moves us into the discussion on Apple's larger future and the role of microtransactions for the tech industry in general. After we try to talk Lando into using either Pandora or, we discuss the possible need within the space program for a transition from the government to the private sector. You may be surprised at who ends up arguing for more government. Enjoy!
